Parque Nacional del Iguazù Travel Guide: 399 reviews and 1,166 photos

Not only do you have the super impressive falls. There is also an abundence of wildlife to check out. Many species of butterflies and loads of monkeys in the trees above the trails. Keep an eye out in the water for Caiman swimming around in the muddy water looking for a flamingo to feast on.
Situated in the northeast of Argentina, Puerto Iguazú City is 300 km away from the Capital City of the Province - Posadas City - and is the city that borders on Brazil and Paraguay through the concourse of Paraná and Iguazú Rivers.
Being a touristic place, it provides with the greatest spectacle of water and forest ever existing on Earth - the imposing Iguazú Falls - in guaraní language "Big waters".
This region has a humid subtropical climate without dry season , with temperatures ranging from 20º C to 33º C in Summer while Winter is mild and nice. It is important to mention that due to the high degree of humidity the rain diminishes thermic amplitude and causes clouds increase.
Topographicaly speaking, Puerto Iguazú is located in a plateau with red rocky land due to the melaphyre decomposition rich in iron and having cliffs covered by humus favouring the growth of an exuberant forest.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The Park is quite big and the walkways allow you to get amongst the falls from every perspective
  • Cons:Food and drinks are expensive so take your own.
  • In a nutshell:The most beautiful falls i have seen. I went 3 times
